For four decades, Fischer's has delighted both novice and professional sweets savants with instruction and supplies for delectable decorations. Learn the fundamentals of dessert decoration over the course of a two-hour express session. Bakers-to-be will receive all supplies necessary for confectionary creation, aided by savvy instruction from Fischer's dedicated staff. Topics include lessons on cake improvement, such as how to deftly ice and smooth away rough edges, adorn tops with frilly dollops of buttercream, and teach elocution lessons in advance of fancy-dress balls.
After mastering the full-sized fundamentals, the class shifts its attention to cake's smaller, scrappier cupcake cousins. Classes include instructions specific to these tinier treats, such as proper methods of filling a cupcake and how to safely operate the shrink ray. In addition to strutting off with newly acquired knowledge and skills, students leave with two self-decorated treats to share with family and friends or preserve forever pressed between the pages of keepsake cookbooks.
